He isn’t holding his tongue on this one.
Former President George Bush Sr. talked politics in a new book called ‘The Last Republicans.’ He and his song, former President George H.W. Bush, said that neither of them voted for Trump in the last election despite being Republican party fixtures. ‘I don’t like him. I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.’
George H.W. Bush made similar remarks, saying ‘As you know from looking at my family, humility is a certain heritage. That’s what they expect, and we’re not seeing that (in Trump).’
Naturally, the White House didn’t stay quiet long after the comments came to light, saying ‘If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had.’ The statement continued, ‘And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history.’
Trump, while winning on the Republican ticket, was never fully supported by the party. He has continued to be at odds with the Republican majority Congress since being elected.
The book, ‘The Last Republicans,’ goes on sale November 14th.
